I am new to this forum. Very happy to have found it. I was diagnosed over ten years ago. I gave my full story under the new member thread. Anyway, I am having a very difficult time with the pain, fatigue and brain fog for quite some time now. I have been to several specialists who have now referred me to pain management. The issue is that I am not currently having any form of treatment and when I called to schedule an appointment with pain management the earliest available appointment they had was for late August. I scheduled this back in March and am now at the point that I just can't take it anymore. I have endured this for many years trying alternative measures and I am at the point that diet, exercise, soaking and vitamins are just not cutting it.
I am a mother of 3, and a wife to a very busy executive so I simply cannot be functioning at this level for much longer. I do not have the help of family or friends and my husband is busy with work so I am on my own. I am hoping that there may be someone on this forum that may be familiar with a specialist or pain management center in my area or close to it, that they would reccomend.
As I had explained in my intro thread, my pcp cannot be of any help as he does not believe in Fibromyalgia as being a legitimate disorder. I know...time for a new pcp.
I live in Western mass so anywhere in that vicinity will work for me. Even another state. I am 20 minutes from new York and Vermont. Even Connecticut or new Hampshire would be fine. My area is limited with physicians. Just finding a new pcp has not been easy. There aren't any good ones taking new patients. My fingers are crossed that someone out there can help.

I'm not in the area, but have you thought of going to a teaching hospital for treatment?

I just did a quick google map search and see that Tufts Medical Center in Boston has a pain management center maybe you can try?
Their website lists the pain they generally handle, which includes myofascial. Maybe you can request a consult?

If not, hope someone else can help you out with a recommendation.

Call your health care provider. They have oodles of information to find a new doc.
